That's what you want to hear happen to your father when you're the cause of your mother's death has been publicised as cocaine related.

Father of the century, Bobby Brown, was pulled over for driving erratically in L.A. Police at first thought it was down to him using a mobile while driving, but then they copped it was Bobby Brown and therefore decided a sobriety test was in order.

It was unclear what substance officers believe the New Edition member had taken before getting behind the wheel. But it has since transpired he "had the blood alcohol level of .08 or higher."

According to TMZ, Bobby was in custody in Van Nuys jail and his representatives posted the $5,000 bail required. 

The 43-year-old singer - whose ex-wife Whitney was found dead in her Beverly Hills hotel room in February - was previously convicted of DUI in Georgia in 1996. He entered a guilty plea at the time and served eight days in jail for the offence.

The singer is currently engaged to Alicia Etheridge.

Lucky lady.
